Being safe in the field is essential to your health and to the health of those you serve. To respond to a dangerous situation quickly, you must be prepared. The purpose of this course is to teach human services and health care workers as well as probation and parole officers how to stay safe while working in the field, delivering services and conducting client meetings.
This course is appropriate for all staff who conduct routine home visits or other field visits in community settings. The majority of examples revolve around home visits including how to prepare for, travel to and conduct site visits while keeping safety in mind, including how to handle critically dangerous situations. While this course uses terms such as “healthcare,” “worker” and “site visit” throughout, it is intended for health care workers from a variety of settings.
